Everton defender Sylvain Distin insists there were many factors which persuaded him to sign a new contract and they were not just footballing or financial.

The 35-year-old, whose current deal was due to expire in the summer, has extended his stay by another 12 months. While the Frenchman was keen to continue his playing career, he stressed he never wanted it to be anywhere other than Goodison Park.

"I'm happy here. It's a great club, I've said that from day one," he said. "I didn't have any reason to leave and the club wanted me to stay, so I'm happy that we could figure it out and that I'm staying for another season."
